Police say a white man accused of stabbing a black man to death with a sword in New York City told investigators he traveled to the media capital of the world to make a big statement and attack black people.
 
James Harris Jackson turned himself in late Tuesday. He has been arrested on a charge of murder.
 
Police say that on Monday the 28-year-old Maryland man approached a 66-year-old New Yorker, Timothy Caughman, and stabbed him several times in the street.
 
Caughman staggered to a nearby police station but died at the hospital.
 
Police also say they've recovered a small sword.
 
There was no immediate information on whether Caughman had an attorney or relatives who could comment on his behalf.
